Back to Zion


We decided Sunday we wanted to come to Utah this week.  Really wanted to go on the MTC Tour, experience the Void and hike Stewart Falls.  So we left Tuesday around 10 and joined Mandy, her family and her parents for the Tour.  Her parents scored us some tickets, never ever complain about connections.  Definitely fun to do the tour with her Dad.  We got to talk to the MTC President and got our pics at the Map.  It feels like a small college campus, so happy for our missionaries.  Incredible artwork in the new building.  If you haven’t been definitely take the time.  Rare opportunity to visit the MTC unless your a missionary.  Funny thing when we walked through the cafeteria I think ever Elder there stopped eating to look at our girls.  Keith and Brad stepped in front of them lol.  After the MTC Tour we hit Tucanos!  The new location is nice.  I so miss Tucanos and still working on one for Idaho Falls.  They cannot deny me forever.  They even remembered me and we got all the pineapple we could eat.  Yes we left a very generous tip.

This morning we had a Doughnut and Juices breakfast.  The entire Juice family attended breakfast.  We had Apple, Orange, Grape, Pineaplle and Grapefruit.  We all had a good time.  Homemade doughnuts always make for a fun start.  Then we headed for Sundance and Stewart Falls. One of our favorite hikes.


Tonight and tomorrow we are going to stay up here.  Fortunately Keith and his brother were able to get most of the time off for some end of Summer play.  Kids have all had a blast so far.  The place we are staying the next couple of nights is AWESOME!  So we are heading back to town to go play at the Void with some friends then back for BBQ and games.  If I have any energy left we may watch a movie.  I’ll probably be asleep by then.  Glad I’m not making dinner tonight!  We will either stop at the outlet at Point of the Mountain or run up to the Park City outlets before we leave to finish up school shopping.  The boys still need a few things.  I ♥️ Summer!

Independence Day Park City 

This has been a very fun July 4th.  Left Idaho Falls around 9:30 yesterday and arrived at 2:00.  Mandy and her family got here just before 3:00 and Sara and her family soon after.  The girls claimed the Guest House, the boys the bonus space above the garage.  They were very excited to have their own space.  This vacation property is amazing.  Over 14,000 sq ft with 9 bedroom suites, pool, theater, game room and just insanely beautiful.  Once settled the kids went swimming while Mandy, Sara and I went for groceries.  The boys grilled up dinner and we prepped the rest.  Enjoyed the pool for awhile then went to Main Street and had some dessert.  Finished the night back at the pool and hot tub. 

July 4th started with 4 am sex then a pancake breakfast at the park.  At 8:00 several of us ran the 5K.  Parade started at 11:00 and was right up Main Street.  I caught a nap after the Parade then we went back for live music, watching volleyball and BBQ.  We did this buffet and OMG it was delicious.  The day ended with an absolutely stunning show of Fireworks.  I think a swim and the hot tub will be a good way to end this very full day.  I want to do a July 4th Party next year at the Homestead.  I got some great ideas today.  We wore the kids out, that is not easy to do.  I hope everyone ate some good food, spent time with peeps you love and enjoyed some fireworks.  

Oahu 

We left Idaho Falls bright and early Monday.  Stops in SLC and LAX on the way to Honolulu.  Arrived there at 1:45 Paradise Time.  Picked up the Explorer and headed to our destination for 4 nights on the East Shores of Kailua Bay.  It was absolutely beautiful.  The beach was about as perfect as you can imagine.  We had 90 ft of beach behind the property plus beach to the north and beach to the south.  It was INCREDIBLE.  The sunrises were breathtaking as well.  I think almost every room had a view of the beach.  See pics below.

Monday night we were invited to a friends for a Memorial Day Feast.  It was fun meeting many of their close friends.  Very long day and when we finally did get to bed we were exhausted.  Tuesday we had a pretty chill morning.  Went to grab some groceries and enjoyed the pool and beach.  Sara and Mandy were getting in about 2 pm so we picked them up and went and had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory.  Tuesday night we had a pretty big dōTERRA class with 26 people.  Finally everyone left at about midnight.  Sara was so tired she was incoherent.  We were entering orders until about 2 am.  I was so happy for bed.  Wednesday I got up in time to see the sunrise and then went for a run.  So beautiful.  Took a nap after breakfast.  Sara and Mandy finally got up around 10.  Today was our day with the dolphins.  The kids were so excited and I just want to say this day was one of the best moments of our lives.  Jack and Chip were very talkative as usual and so much energy.  Kids and dolphins 🐬 are a perfect match.  Jack posed for this pic. 

Thursday we all got up for the sunrise.  Enjoyed the beach for awhile then up to the Polynesian Cultural Center for the afternoon.  Got some tees and souvenirs and didn’t have enough time to see it all.  We didn’t stay for dinner as Mandy, Sara and I had another dōTERRA class that evening.  Need to go back for sure.  Friday we didn’t go anywhere.  Enjoyed our last day here on Oahu on the beach.  After lunch we started to do the check out list and then were dropped off at the airport for our flight to Maui.  Hugs and goodbyes to my best friends.  They had an 8:45 flight later back to Utah.  Great way to go home by flying through the night.  I already miss them.  I’ll update Maui in a couple of days.  Honestly a lot of rest and relaxation is planned lol.  ❤️

U2

Last week Mandy, Sara and I took our hubbies on an adventure to San Francisco.  While there we went down to Santa Clara to see the U2 Joshua Tree concert.  It was the third time we have seen U2 in concert and as usual they were awesome!

Keith and I drove down to Utah Monday afternoon and stayed in Park City for the night.  We got up way too early on Tuesday, I mean we could have slept longer but he was ready to go.  Keith actually pulled the covers off of me!  I was shocked.  I mean you just don’t do that.  Especially after the fun we had a few hours earlier.  I was naked and it was cold.  Anyway it wasn’t a good start to the day.  I had to work very hard to Forgive but I will not Forget.

Keith is one of those travelers that has to get they like an hour before you need to be. I’m kind of the one that I usually makes it on time. Usually like when it really matters. Important stuff I usually make on time anyway. So I tend to be quite vexing to him when we travel.  I make it up in sexual ways but in the moment he can be…what is that word?

Frustrated!  That’s it.  I know your saying “not Angie.” I agree with you.  I totally 110% agree with you.  I will let Keith know.  So anyway we got to San Francisco and checked in at the Marriott Marquis.  Tuesday was a little cloudy and cooler but after some lunch we got a little exploring done.  It was a pretty chill day over all.  Travel days usually are.  After dinner there may have been a little swapping for some hardcore petting that ended in very hot sex with Keith back in our room.  Room service may have been slightly awkward lol.  Happens.

Wednesday we hit the Spa.  Started with a 90 minute hot rock massage and then pedis and manis.  It was a great girls morning.  The guys had been out exploring all morning so we went and had lunch there at the hotel then had a few hours to kill back in the room.  We had to get ready for the concert.  Sometimes it does take awhile.  Distractions.  The guys got back and were rewarded with head from each of us.  We took them each around the world 3 times before the teasing ended.  Then off to Levi Stadium.

We got there about 5:45.  Mumford and Sons was the opening act.  They weren’t too bad.  But I was wanting my U2.  The other concerts we had been to was the Elevation Tour in SLC November 2001 and the the 360 Tour at the University of Utah a few years later.  A U2 concert is pretty much a spiritual experience.  This night was no exception.  They started with Sunday Bloody Sunday and WOW it was over two hours of U2 Heaven.




We got back very late to the Marriott.  Slept in Thursday then ordered room service.  A friend recommended the Filbert Stairs up to the Coit Tower.  That was a lot of stairs!  Beautiful though.  Not something you experience every day.



We had been invited to look at a property while there.  It was built in 1904 in the Presidio Heights neighborhood.  They had a backyard theater and invited us back for a movie night.  We ordered pizzas and it was a lot of fun.  We watched Jason Bourne to wrap up the day and headed back.

Friday we flew back to SLC.  Went to Tucanos for lunch then headed back to Idaho Falls.  Happy to be home for a few days.  One more event this week then Summer Vacation begins.  I can’t wait!

Sundance Film Festival 

This year we decided to host a few parties ourselves for clients, friends, and family.  I have done some events at the Sundance Film Festival for others in the past but never one for us.  It has been sooooooo fun.  Arrived Monday after braving the trek down from Idaho.  Mostly good roads but some bad weather.  Stayed at the property Monday night by ourselves.  This place is HUGE!  Enjoyed some time in the hot tub and the insanely awesome home theater.  Slept in Tuesday and after some breakfast and errands Mandy arrived.  Caterers arrived about 2 hours before and by 6 we had a steady flow of guests until about 11, then everyone finally left about 1 am.  We expected a big turnout but 400 in a night was a busy night.  I think we were all exhausted from playing social butterflies.  We had a 7 and 9 pm movie in the theater running as it was a film festival.  Lots of finger foods? some we ran out of, but fortunately we had enough food to get through the night.  We did not serve alcohol but everyone seemed to have fun.  After some clean up and 1 am we crashed.  Mandy slept with us but too tired for any play.  I woke up and thought it was Thursday until later in the morning.  It was a total shock and relief to realize it was Wednesday.  I was already mentally preparing to do the second event that night.  We hit Kneaders for breakfast and went back and had a nap.  Wednesday afternoon we had our Sundance fun which included Pizza on Main Street, a movie, concert and some dancing.  I love to dance.  Ended up back at the property and Keith got quite the show.  Mandy and I were having a very hard time keeping our hands off each other.  Behind closed doors it was a surrender to Lust.  OMG she tastes good!  So here I am at 5:30 am on the real Thursday.  Several incredible orgasms last night.  I am pondering being selfish and waking her up….    

What is ahead?  Another party tonight and tomorrow and then Saturday, a day of fun with friends and family.  I think Saturday most are planning skiing.  This property is a Ski in/Ski Out home.  I’m tempted to ski but most likely will sit out still.  We are both excited  to see our kids.  Friday and Saturday will be so much fun.  A few of the group will go to the BYU game Saturday night.  I may slip away for that.  Sunday morning we will be up early and head home.  Next week I am going to relax :).
